BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS Still So Far to Go

Still So Far to Go

So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good. The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin.

—Romans 7:14

When I began to lose my hair in my 30s, I started finding imaginative ways to postpone the inevitable. One day my friend, who is also bald, took off his hat. “Check this out,” he said, showing me his new hairpiece. “The guy who made it is really good.”


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


A few weeks later, my hairpiece arrived. It was nice as far as hairpieces go. But when I put it on, I felt pretty stupid. I just couldn’t bring myself to start wearing it.

Author Peggy Noonan described a hairpiece as “a lie on your head.” That’s pretty accurate. I don’t think any of us wants a lie on our heads or in any other area of our lives. We want to be honest. We don’t want to be hypocrites.

People are quick to throw around the term hypocrite when they see any inconsistency in a Christian’s life. But let’s understand what a hypocrite is. A hypocrite is someone who tries to appear to be something they are not at all, not someone who believes something and fails to live up to it.

Believing something and then falling short of it doesn’t make us hypocrites; it makes us human. We are imperfect people trying to serve a perfect God, and every believer falls short.

Even the great apostle Paul made this candid admission in Romans 7, “I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. . . . So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it” (verses 15, 17).

The further we go in the Christian life, we realize the further we must go. And the more I grow spiritually, the more I discover I must grow spiritually.

It is vitally important that we all take the time to like and share articles regardless of what site you are on. Conservative sites (like this one) cannot count on traffic from Facebook etc. any more. Subscribing is also important; this bypasses the censorship. The more that we can get the word out the better – and in order to continue bringing you content like this – we ALL need traffic in order to survive. Running a website is not only expensive, it also takes a lot of time and effort.
